AMBITION, by            
First Line: I dream no more of varied love
Last Line: So I to death shall smiling go.
Subject(s): Ambition


I dream no more of varied love,
Nor lust for wealth and fame.
(A soul afire wings free above
Self-joy and courted name.)

But let me chant one living song
Before my voice is spent,
And to that end anew grow strong
To shun false ravishment: --

Command, my soul, the mists to clear,
Supplant all sterile roles;
Then may I sing in words that sear
Their rhythm on kindred souls.

This grace on me, O Fate, bestow,
So I to death shall smiling go.
